Minimum Investments

There is no minimum initial investment on a per Fund basis for Class N shares. However, the minimum initial investment in Class N shares of the Dunham Funds, on an aggregate basis, is $100,000 for taxable accounts and $50,000 for tax-deferred accounts ("MIN"). The MIN can be waived if the investor has, in the opinion of the Adviser, adequate intent and availability of assets to reach a future level of investment among the Funds that is equal to or greater than the MIN. The MIN can also be waived by the Adviser for shareholders investing through a wrap program or similar arrangement. There is no minimum subsequent investment amount for Class N shares. If a Class N shareholder's investment in the Dunham Funds falls below the MIN for reasons other than depreciation of the investment, the investor may receive a notice from the Adviser and will be given a reasonable amount of time to cure the deficiency. If the deficiency is not cured within such time, the Adviser reserves the right to convert the account to Class A shares (on a load waived basis) or take other appropriate measures.
